Gary Miller, founder of Wheat-Free Market, shares his Wheat Belly experience
Gary Miller, founder of Wheat-Free Market foods, the food company founded on Wheat Belly principles, shares his Wheat Belly experience now that he has invested four years into the lifestyle:
“Yesterday marked four years following Wheat Belly, without a single bite of bread, pasta, cookies, or cake containing wheat. I never cheated once and adopted the lifestyle quite easily. I weighed 176 lbs this morning and have maintained that weight, give or take 5 lbs either direction, since arriving at that weight after about 5 months following Wheat Belly. So that is over 3.5 years of maintenance without effort…nothing short of miraculous to me! I lost just over 75 lbs in the months after Labor Day 2011, when I began this journey.
“The health benefits are too numerous to list, with the biggies being increased energy, no more digestive issues, lower blood pressure and pulse rate, goodbye to regular headaches, and I HAVE NOT HAD A SINGLE COLD OR THE FLU SINCE 2011. To say this was life-changing is an understatement. It even changed my career as well, as I am now in the food business as the founder of Wheat-Free Market Foods, doing so to help others stay the course. I am 50 years old now and feel better than I did at 35.
“It has been wonderful to see so many people experience such positive results in so many facets of their lives over the years and I wish everyone well and hope to inspire people that may just be beginning their journey. To health!”
As you look at Gary’s photos that span more than four years from left to right, it looks to me that, with each photo, he is getting younger and more vibrant as the years pass. Removing grains means removing inflammation, puffiness, edema, gastrointestinal havoc, impaired immunity—all the health disruptions that accompany this awful notion of “healthy whole grains,” and it is visible on the face.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been almost four years since I got the first phone call from Gary, telling me about his Wheat Belly experience and how he believed that this lifestyle was going to change the world of food. What if you could create foods like pizza, cake, muffins, and cookies that were not just indulgences, but healthy? It could truly revolutionize the world of food. We agreed that Gary would do the hard work, while I would stay on the sidelines and advise him and his crew on how to make sure that the products they produced were truly healthy and adhered to the principles advocated in Wheat Belly: no wheat, no grains, no gluten-free crap ingredients like cornstarch, nothing else unhealthy—only genuinely healthy ingredients, no added sugars, no synthetic ingredients, organic whenever possible. Not easy, when you think about it, if you hope to provide everyone with foods and mixes that help navigate holidays, entertaining, kids, grandkids, as well as create healthy, safe indulgences. I provided many of the starting recipes, while Gary and his staff, especially Jose Estrada, a master at formulating food products, improved on them, making, for instance, the recipes for Classic Granola and brownies better than my original conceptions.
Gary walks the walk and talks the talk of the Wheat Belly lifestyle and it shows in his photos and the products he and Wheat-Free Market provide. Happy 4-year Wheat Belly anniversary, Gary!
